A Stafford native who has lived in Culpeper for the previous 17 years, Curtis shifted to therapeutic massage after working 4 years as a powerlifter at Gold’s Gymnasium. She’s amassed a consumer file of greater than 1,000 individuals.
“I wished a profession change,” mentioned the Brooke Level Excessive College graduate. “I used to be in promoting and advertising and marketing and I wished to do one thing totally different within the health trade. I had by no means gotten a therapeutic massage earlier than, I had by no means given a therapeutic massage earlier than, simply one thing clicked in my thoughts that is what it’s essential to do.
“As quickly as I used to be licensed, I simply hit the bottom operating, self-employed, put my desk behind my automobile, in between jobs I used to be doing at massive field shops I might go meet purchasers in no matter city I used to be in.”
After about two months, she had sufficient purchasers to stop the opposite jobs. Curtis stopped energy lifting due to the calluses on her fingers it brought about, not conducive for therapeutic massage. She leased house from Gold’s and Pranapiloga, and it led in 2019 to the opening of Components Wellness Spa, its décor impressed by earth, air, fireplace and water.
Heather Boggess, an authorized private coach at Gold’s Gymnasium and Powell Wellness Heart, began working with Curtis as a consumer to begin. It was their shared ardour for well being and wellness that allowed for continued collaboration on bettering a consumer’s well being, she mentioned.
